So, there are only two reasons for you to be reading this review. Either (A) you are a big fan of the classic Thundarr cartoon and you want to know if this DVD release will live up to your expectations, or (B) you just stumbled across this item and you have no idea why there are so many 5 star reviews for a cartoon that you've never heard of. So, I'm going to break this up into two sections. Feel free to just read the review that you can relate to... Cuz who has time to read a review that talks about stuff that you already know?

Never heard of Thundarr? Okay, picture this: You're 8 years old, it's Saturday morning and you're sitting in front of your TV eating a bowl of Frosted Flakes. After a few hours of Casper, Scrappy Doo and something called "Fred & Barney Meet the Schmoo" (not kidding), suddenly you're bombarded with images of the Earth being torn apart by earthquakes, tidal waves and general destruction. Then a voice basically tells you that 14 years from now, you, your friends and everyone and everything that you know will be dead.

How's THAT for a cure for attention deficit disorder??

That was basically the premise of Thundarr. The world has been destroyed and thousands of years later, life evolves, only now the world is some bizarre mix of dragons, mutants, wizards, robots, aliens, werewolves and descendants of the human race. I won't get into the specifics (there's alot of cool info on wikipedia and other sites) but lets just say that this cartoon was DECADES ahead of it's time. Just about everything that you can compare it to actually came AFTER Thundarr. Not only was this show original (forgiving the few things they borrowed from Star Wars), but as a Saturday morning cartoon? A cartoon with no talking dog or grinning monkey or wacky sidekick?

Thundarr the Barbarian has finally been released to DVD after so many fans have waited for so many years! I truly do applaud the Warners for these "exclusive" set by set releases for those classics from the Warner library that have the cult following to warrant their release but, apparently, not quite enough for release to the commercial (retail) market.

For those who are unfamiliar with the story, the opening credits do a good job of delving us into the action via the following SPOILER ALERT. In 1994, a meteor passing between the Earth and moon causes an apocolyptic end to "Old" Earth (obviously, this has not happened but, during the initial airings, it was fourteen years too early to tell). Anyway, Earth civilization is cast into ruin and, two thousand years later, Earth is reborn as a bastion of a combination of the realms of savagery, super science, and sorcery. If you're not sold on this concept yet, it is simply because I cannot explain it as eloquently as the show's producers at Ruby Spears, a subset of Warner Brothers/Hanna-Barbera lore.

It's Thundarr the Barbarian! He was a blonde, over-muscled swordsman who wielded a mystic weapon and, with the help of his allies, Ookla, the Mok [wookie creature], and vuluptuous sorceress, Princess Ariel, saved an Earth reborn (if you think I'm describing a different iconic '80's hero who also utilized a mystic sword, don't be confused). Anyway, at the demands of many loyal fans, YouTubists, and avid Boomerang/Original Cartoon Network viewers, the Warners have given us a sort-of commercial release of this show directly through its website. Not only that but the source material that they used is in great shape.

While the animation from this early 80's 'toon is of the "Hanna-Barbara School of Animation" (although the show was produced by Ruby-Spears), the writing and plot situations made up for that discrepancy.
Set two thousand years in the future, "Thundarr" tells the tale of a planet gone topsy-turvy. After a comet passes between the Earth and the moon (in 1994, nonetheless), a major disruption occurs, causing earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tidal waves...yeah, all the Irwin Allen stuff. Thus, two millennia later, Earth is now in utter chaos with areas of mass destruction and a few exotic oases. For some reason, the catastrophe produces mutant creatures, human and animal, plus there is a rise in the use of magic (unexplained throughout the show's two year run).
Enter Thundarr, a barbarian that wields a mean "sun sword", his pal Ookla, one of those mutants mentioned earlier, and Ariel, a sorceress that looks mean in a pair of hot tights. This trio comes to the rescue of the downtrodden and the beset upon throughout the world. There are no terrors that they cannot overcome.
Hey, the world needs some heroes.
The first episode of the series was obviously influenced by the artwork of legendary comic artist Jack Kirby. That installment had a villain named "Gemini" that, like his name, had a dual personality (and a face that "turned" to reveal his other side). The show also sported a unique nemesis for Thundarr in the form of a "revived" Statue of Liberty using her torch as a "weapon of mass destruction".
Way cool!
